Today in 1941, the world's first TV commercial aired.

The ad was broadcast before a game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies and cost the Woodside-based company less than ten dollars.

The same company also bought the first ever radio advertisement (1926) and was the first company to make a large sponsorship agreement with a TV show (1955). What company is this? Click here to find out and see a still from the TV commercial.
